Bears' Deon Bush: Staying in Chicago
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush re-signed Wednesday with the Bears on a one-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Bush tested free agency but ultimately decided to stick with the team that selected him in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. The 27-year-old mostly contributed on special teams in 2020, though he recorded two pass breakups and an interception over 65 defensive snaps. Bush should handle a similar role in 2021.

Bears' Deon Bush: Without limitations Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (foot) logged a full practice session Thursday.

Bush was unable to play in Chicago's regular-season finale versus the Packers, but it appears he's set to make a return to the field with the Bears punching a postseason ticket. Most of the 27-year-old's involvement has come via special teams, as he's averaged 17.5 snaps per game in that department compared to just 21 combined defensive snaps over his past eight appearances.

Bears' Deon Bush: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (foot) participated at Wednesday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

After missing Sunday's loss to the Packers, Bush was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. It's unclear whether the backup safety will get up to speed to join the active squad for Sunday's wild-card matchup against the Saints.

Bears' Deon Bush: Won't play Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (foot) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Bush's foot injury held him out Week 15 for a matchup against Minnesota, but he was able to return last Sunday during a winning effort in Jacksonville. The backup safety provided limited participation during Friday's session after sitting out the preceding two practices, but his condition in pregame warmups seemingly was not favorable enough to roll him out in Week 17.

Bears' Deon Bush: Back for Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (foot) is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

The 27-year-old was sidelined for last week's matchup with the Vikings due to the foot injury, but he'll be back on the field this weekend. Cornerbacks Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) and Buster Skrine (concussion) are unavailable, so Bush could have an increased role in the secondary Sunday.

Bears' Deon Bush: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (foot) won't suit up in Sunday's divisional game against Minnesota.

The Bears' secondary will be missing some key pieces in the contest, as along with Bush, Jaylon Johnson (shoulder) and Buster Skrine (concussion) have also been ruled out. With Bush sidelined, back up strong safety duties will shift to Deandre Houston-Carson behind starter Tashaun Gipson.

Bears' Deon Bush: Back with team Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Bears activated Bush from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday, Larry Mayer of the team's official site reports.

Bush came into close contact with someone who had tested positive for the virus, but he appears to have satisfied requirements for clearance. Bush has appeared in six games this season, recording four tackles and an interception, so expect him to return to his usual depth safety role for Monday's game against the Vikings.

Bears' Deon Bush: Lands on COVID-19 list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, Adam Hoge of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

The 27-year-old apparently hasn't tested positive for the virus, but he was in close contact with an infected individual away from the team. Bush will at least be sidelined for Sunday's game at Tennessee while he works through the COVID-19 protocols.

Bears' Deon Bush: Back in action Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) is active for Monday's game versus the Rams.

Bush missed the last two games but is back in the fold after practicing fully Saturday. The fifth-year safety out of Miami (Fla.) typically only plays on defense in clear passing situations, and with starting safeties Tashaun Gipson and Eddie Jackson healthy, Bush likely will remain in a reserve role Monday.

Bears' Deon Bush: Will miss second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Panthers.

Bush served in a situational role through the first four games before suffering this injury, and now he'll sit out a second straight game. Deandre Houston-Carson enjoyed a bump in usage with Bush out of the lineup last week, but if Sherrick McManis (hamstring) can shake off his injury, he'll be the main beneficiary of Bush's absence.

Bears' Deon Bush: Ruled out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) won't suit up in Thursday night's clash with Tampa Bay.

After Bush failed to suit up in any practice throughout the week, this news appeared to be a foregone conclusion. The veteran suffered the injury during last week's loss to Indianapolis and he'll miss his first game of the season. In his stead, expect Tashaun Gipson to handle the bulk of the free safety reps, with Deandre Houston-Carson handling the depth snaps.

Bears' Deon Bush: Done for the day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush will not return to Sunday's game against the Colts due to a hamstring injury, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Bush was ruled out of Sunday's contest early in the fourth quarter. The rotational safety will face a quick turnaround if he wants to get healthy for Thursday's upcoming game against the Buccaneers.

Bears' Deon Bush: Picks off pass
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush intercepted a pass while adding one tackle in Chicago's 17-13 win over the Giants on Sunday.

Although Bush helped Chicago win the game by picking off a pass, he's still second on the depth chart at strong safety, and he's not likely going to see enough snaps to be a regular contributor in IDP leagues.

Bears' Deon Bush: Remains in Windy City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush signed a one-year, $1.4 million contract with the Bears on Friday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Bush has spent the entirety of his four-year career as a depth safety and key special-teams asset in Chicago, so it's no surprise to see the team keep him in the fold for 2020. However, the 26-year-old doesn't offer much in the way of IDP value.

Bears' Deon Bush: Back from illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (illness) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report.

Bush didn't play in Sunday's loss to the Eagles due to an illness, but he now appears fully clear of the issue. The 26-year-old should resume his special-teams heavy role Week 10.

Bears' Deon Bush: Dealing with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Matt Nagy said Sunday that Bush didn't play in Sunday's game against the Eagles due to an illness, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Bush was thought to be a healthy scratch for Week 9 before Nagy's comments, and had seen snaps in every game to this point. If the 2016 fourth-round pick can shake off the ailment, he'll likely be back in his usual depth role for Week 10 against Detroit.

Bears' Deon Bush: Lands on inactive list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush is a healthy scratch Week 9 against the Eagles, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Bush has seen snaps on defense in each game this season, though most of his work has been on special teams. HIs absence sets up Deandre Houston-Carson and Sherrick McManis as the backup safeties behind starters Eddie Jackson and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.

Bears' Deon Bush: Finishes season as fill-in starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush had eight solo tackles, a sack and a forced fumble in 15 games this season.

Bush played only 42 defensive snaps for the season through Week 15, but took over as a starter at safety after Eddie Jackson's ankle injury. Bush then started the final three games of the season -- including the wild-card loss to the Eagles -- and played well as a fill-in. the 25-year-old remains under contract for 2019 and is likely to serve in a reserve role at safety, though one the starting positions remains a question mark with Adrian Amos headed for free agency.

Bears' Deon Bush: Starting workload on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush is expected to start at free safety against the 49ers on Sunday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.

Bush, who has not yet exceeded 15 defensive snaps in a single game this season, is on track to draw his first start against the 49ers. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Thursday that he's "anxious to see him [Bush] play." If Bush is able to show well, he'll likely continue to start as long as Eddie Jackson (ankle) remains sidelined.

Bears' Deon Bush: Back at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bush (hamstring) avoided Wednesday's injury report, Rich Campbell of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Bush's absence from Wednesday's report bodes well for his chances of playing in Sunday's game against Green Bay. While he'll likely revert to a special teams role, Bush provides the Bears with added depth in the secondary should they need it.
